The Criminal Division provides the following programs and initiatives:
Victim/witness specialist program
We support victims and witnesses involved in the cases we prosecute.
We manage several diversion programs for offenders.
Public safety initiatives
We develop and implement smart public safety initiatives that:
- Seek the best long-term outcomes, not by measuring the number of convictions and the severity of sentences
- Address the underlying needs of chronic offenders
- Use treatment courts and effective programming for other offenders
- Divert offenders with minor offenses to resolutions outside traditional prosecution
